Sandy beaches are all very well ...... let's face it, they have their place. If all you want to do is stretch out on the warm sand and allow your body to be engulfed by the (genderless) sun's rays, that's fine! But for sheer interest and variety, give me a nice stony, rocky beach any day.
A sandy beach wouldn't be much use to this guy, nature has provided him with some serious poking shit to get in amongst the rocks.
And these are much more interesting than 10,000 billion grains of sand.......
..........and not to be outdone by Ms. Toastburner, a good Scottish Shag........ or is it a Cormorant?
